    I have hard time envisioning them doing a better Warpath, but Gears and Swerve for sure, that mold wasn’t all that great, Gears has Brawn’s head and Swerve has an overly cartoony IDW face. (Although I don’t revel in the idea of more $20 Legends-sized figures)

    ER Prime to me, in my own personal opinion is a Masterpiece Junior. IMG_20200523_120030_062.jpg

    I need Cheetor, Elita-1 and Bumblebee. Could this be the start of Beast wars return?

    I’m doubtful of a full on bw return. My current theory is that we will get an earthrise cheetor in a similar role to his part in cyberverse, as the guardian of the allspark

    That's such a tiny Super Zeo Megazord. Does it even separate?

    Nah, it's just a Korean model kit that I found on eBay for $20. I was surpised at how detailed that it is though!

    Hey, anyone here a sysop or have rights to make edits to TFWiki?

    I picked up Grapple today, transformed it, started looking on the wiki for info about the character... and noticed a line about how the pegs are too large on many of them and can break. This immediately halted me from transforming it back into robot mode.

    However, I was able to get it apart without damaging the figure. By using hot water (in my case from an electric kettle) and some time, I let the pieces soften/expand enough so that they'd slide out without damaging or cracking each other. The figure is no worse for wear, because I was careful to avoid putting any painted parts in the figure beyond a wheel or two.

    Now that I have it apart I'm going to do the recommended sanding to try and loosen the pegs. But I thought it would be useful to pass this advice along to the place I got it. Unfortunately, it says I'm blocked from creating an account due to some proxy stuff with my fiber internet ISP.

    Let me rephrase, I believe BW will make a comeback in some capacity, but I do not believe that hasbro will abruptly change direction and ditch g1 in the last act of a trilogy, nor do I think bw will replace g1 as the main generations line. If anything bw will either get it's own subline, maybe within wfc (think like how year 3 of the bw toyline had both fuzors and transmetals or how wfc has wfc siege, wfc earthrise, wfc trilogy netflix and wfc trilogy generations selects with netflix and selects running alongside the main branch) or bw will the the focus of the next tv series line.

    Sand/widen the ports instead. The pegs are fragile enough as is.
